The Village


The Villa is a two-minute walk to the medieval village of Torre Alfina in “Alta Tuscia” (the Estruscan Highlands). The village is perched on a hilltop that is virtually the intersection of Lazio, Tuscany and Umbria. The heart of the village is the castle that once belonged to the Monaldeschi family and then the Bourbon del Monte family before it was bought in the late 1880s by Edoardo Cahen, who was given the title Marquis of Torre Alfina.

The village itself has extraordinary views and two fine traditional restaurants. In addition, two small shops stocked with essentials, two cafes and the finest gelateria in the area are found along its cobblestone and children-safe streets – just minutes away. Traditional “sagre” (festivals) are held throughout the year, each having its own special processions, culinary and artistic offerings and celebrations.
